Installment 38 ~ Nebuchadnezzar's Turnaround
Chaper 4 Verses 34-37: Nebuchadnezzar one day looked up to Heaven and apparently in his heart. He truly repented and acknowledged God and was restored to his sanity. When Nebuchadnezzar's sanity was restored, he praised God and gave Him the glory and the praise He was entitled to. He stated God's rule was eternal. He is the Creator and all are nothing before Him. He does as He pleases, and no one can do anything to interfere with His will.
And so Nebuchadnezzar was restored to his throne and power, As a consequence he gave God the glory for all he had learned and seen.
Conclusion: There remains no question that God controls both governments and their leaders. None will rule with out His allowing them. And God will let no one take credit for that which He has done.
This is the last we hear of Nebuchadnezzar. We are left with the sense that at last He gave God the proper place in his life.
To be continued.
